With only a short 41 years with us, Jeff gave us joy with his awesome hugs and mild demeanour. Jeff did many jobs, including maintenance at the office of Matchett Financial Services, plowing snow and cutting grass during the seasons. In his spare time, every summer Jeff enjoyed fishing on Lake Huron and always shared his catch with us. He loved his dog, Cora, and was often seen walking her in downtown Kincardine or at the Geddes Park trails.

There will be no funeral service. A Celebration of his Life will be held at a future date.

In memory of Jeff, donations to the passion of his life, the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter, would be appreciated and can be made through the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home (519-396-2701).
